SB very good but FOTM is the best of the 80's IMHO, especially JG's solo on the outro. Entire show is outstanding. Setlist is pretty sick - how many shows contain Row Jimmy, To Lay Me Down, The Wheel, and China Doll (the latter two in a fat PITB sandwich!)?

one my all time
One of my all time favorite shows to come back to. I usually listen to the Healy aud of this show how ever reading 'Purple gels' review on other soundboard recording I decided to check out what the guys sounded like to them selves threw the board. Most certainly not disappointed in any of the recordings or song on this night. Even El Paso was good this night.
On sum review I read earlier this morning another commenter I respect said something to the effect that there are to many 4 and 5 stars given out for as shows that don't warrant it. I think this one completely warrants 5 stars because was at the show and 5 more because it is a very good show. They were on from the get go .
I give a listen to many shows that I know others that were on tour for review. Purple Gel having seen over 230 not including JGB am sure. I too saw almost 500 so I give credit where it's due. To those who were on tour in early 80's . I too love 81 and 82 but would have to throw in 83 and 84 also. yes 1985 was a great year but still I prefer the years I just wrote of. To each his own I suppose. some like the 90's many like the 70's .

A "Never Forget" day
It was a Monday. I was in 11th grade. No school that day or the next. Decided to haul up to New Haven from Phila. burbs for the show. In the lot, we heard on the radio that Marley had died.
The show was excellent and this recording/Matrix captures it in the "just exactly perfect" way.

Let the world go by...
First off..I love the mix on this show..It gives nice depth to the sound!! There are some really nice gems in 81' and here's one.. The 1st set is solid with a nice Row Jimmy and I always love a high energy Lazy Lightning>Supplication. A nice Scarlet>Fire followed by a CC Rider..how often have do you seen that!! The rest of the 2nd set is solid and I always love a To Lay Me Down and Playing in the Band..the show ends with Satisfaction and after listening to this show I was completely SATISFIED!! so please GIVE IT A WHIRL!!!!

This is a sweet mix Hunter. Lots of the essential up front with just enough of the atmosphere on the back end, very enjoyable. Keep 'em comin'!
